VOLUNTEER

People who generously give their time, effort and skills to our mission make a difference in the lives of hundreds of families every week.  Together we put food in their cupboards and on their tables.

 

 We are now seeking new volunteers  who are able to join us for at least one shift, once a month, for a minimum of three months.  Most jobs include packing/lifting/moving bags or boxes that weight 15 pounds (or more) and walking.

 

There are a variety of jobs you can do to help at our pantry outdoors or COVID-safe indoor locations:

  • Outdoor Set up

  • Packing Produce Bags

  • Packing Cold Orders

  • Packing Grocery and Kids Club Bags

  • Giving Groceries to Shoppers

  • Translation Services (Haitian Creole, Spanish, Russian)

  • Flattening Boxes and Tidying Up

We need volunteers to help at our pantry:

TUESDAYS, 12PM until 6PM and First SATURDAY, 10AM until 2PM

We always need volunteers to help unload our food deliveries:

Who Can Volunteer
 

Our volunteers are typically between the ages of 17 and 70 years old although we welcome those younger and older.

 

Young adults between the ages of 11 and 16 years old may volunteer with an accompanying adult (parent or other relative, guardian or group leader). 

High school students not enrolled in a year end internship should plan to volunteer a minimum of four hours (2 shifts) per month.

Families can volunteer together!

Groups are welcome to volunteer together. If you are part of a business, school or civic group, please email our Volunteer Coordinator Sarah for instructions for how each of you should register.

Guidelines for Volunteers

We ask that all CSFP volunteers demonstrate our core values of mutual respect and kindness. It helps if you can add a little patience and good humor, too! 

Click the envelope              to read our Guidelines so you are prepared to volunteer with us.

In the meantime, be assured that there will always be a staff and/or board member present during your volunteer shift to answer your questions and give you guidance.
